Foster Homes
Save Lives!

You can help rescue animals find their forever home!

Fostering a rescue animal means that you agree to take an animal into your home and care for them until they can find a loving forever home through Secondhand Hounds. We are always in need of more fosters in the Twin Cities area. Most of our animals are saved directly from animal shelters where they are at risk of being euthanized, so they need foster homes to show them what it means to feel loved.

What will be expected of me as a foster home?

All items you need to care for your foster dog or cat (crate, food, bowl, litter box, etc.) will be provided by Secondhand Hounds, as well as any vet expenses to get them ready for their forever home. The most important part of your job will be to help reintroduce your foster animal to a home environment by giving him/her some basic training, socialization and lots of love.

Since our foster homes know the animals in their care the best, our fosters are very involved in the adoption process and decide if an applicant will be approved to adopt their foster animal. More information on the adoption process can be found below.

Please review our fostering FAQ below and reach out to if you have questions before you start fostering!
